For corruption

So former heads of state can be prosecuted? And found guilty? And sentenced to prison? Whaddya know.

French ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy has been sentenced to three years in jail, two of them suspended, for corruption. He was convicted of trying to bribe a judge in 2014 – after he had left office – by suggesting he could secure a prestigious job for him in return for information about a separate case.

Sarkozy, 66, is the first former French president to get a custodial sentence.

His lawyer says he will appeal. Sarkozy will remain free during that process which could take years.

Or not. Anyway we all know of a pasty white guy with a fake goldy combover who’s sweating bullets today.
